*Sorry, I meant october 5

We came at 9:45 and we waited as usual. We then went straight to Deja Vu. It was not open but it was testing every 10 minutes. After an hour of waiting we finnaly got on the first train-2nd row, of the day. Good ride.

Then we went to Viper and waited 20 minutes back row. Awesome.

Then we hopped on Raging Bull. We waited 40 minutes because of a 2 train operation, but eventually, after a half and hour, they put on the third train.

We ate lunc, it was about 1:30. Next we were going to go to AE backwards, but we noticed from farmers market, that it was stuck on the lift hill. We then went to Iron Wolf. I was dissapointed that they didn't have the big sign that said "Iron Werewolf". No big deal though. I saw the new track while going up the lift hill, the colors were very bright.

Next was V2. Waited front row, 25 min. wait. Then Whirligig. Then Batman waiting about 20 minutes.

After, we went to get my friend's pass processed(it was her first time going this year). Then my friends went on whizzer with a 20 minute wait. We headed for AE backwards but when we got there it was still down. We saw it testing though. We stayed in the area and we saw an employee riding it, so we waited in line. It finnaly opened and we were the 2nd train-last row of the night. We then went in line again with a 15 minute wait. I love AE backwards. Ride side was not running.

Then we went to Necropolis. It was a weird haunted walkway.

It got pretty annoying hearing the Michael Myers music all day. It was nice weather, a bit chilly but comfortable! It was not crowded at all. And the lines were all short. I would consider that perfect!

V2 can't be compared to any of the rides in SFGAm!The Vertical Drop was amazing!

IronWereWolf's sign was down? Do you think it will be up later for Fright Fest? Was all of the other theming up?

Why cant SFGAM run their most popular rides at full capacity, rather than using a 2 train operation and making the lines longer than they have to be??

Bob O. Why on god's green earth do you keep bringing up the same tiresome statements?

If you have a problem with the park (even though you keep going back), bring your problems up with them. We cant answer them here.

2 superheroes in Gurnee next season? Oh the humanity. :)
